Matt Shadetek is a member of a rare and vanishing tribe: the native New Yorkers. When he was five years old, his best friend Basil got a copy of the Beastie Boys' License to Ill. Basil’s mom was a painter and free thinker who recognized intuitively that this was the perfect music for two rowdy five year olds. Ten years later the head rush of jungle hit New York: "I thought I was going to be a science fiction writer until I started going to Konkrete Jungle. The music was so crazy and futuristic but also connected the dots between rave music, hip-hop and dancehall. I was totally captivated."
BBA links with OG Tragedy Khadafi for Some Ol' School. Trag lets people know he still got it. BBA holds his own with a Queensbridge legend and spits some fresh bars over a Marc Wondah produced track. God Willing!!
With all the popular buffoonery misrepresenting hip-hop, Rob Fresh takes it upon himself to set the tone for the year over a Nas joint. No more BRAGGING, No more SWAGGIN, either kill shit or shut up! These n*ggaz Accident Murderers.......
Video: Zero Star - "A Star Is Born - Part One Community"
This part one of a three part series shot and edited by my friend and Rhymesayers recording artist Blueprint, speaking about my growth as an artist, man, and bi monthly Buggin Out. We're both excited with the final product, so we hope you enjoy.
With guest appearances from Ghostface, Action Bronson, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, Roc Marciano, Vinnie Paz, Cappadonna & additional production from DJ Premier, you can expect nothing less then top notch production and rewind worthy lyricism from CZARFACE. "We are CZARFACE because they know our faces and they know us for being dope rhyme suppliers, like Tony Montana we are known for our balls and our word; lyrically we will conquer the world and everything in it” states Deck. Esoteric explains further, “CZARFACE is a vigilante, anti-hero character who serves as the face of the project, and his focus is on annihilating the media darlings that the mainstream caters to.”
Chris Skillz has dropped a new video entitled “Suicidal Note” on YouTube. It chronicles his experience with depression and suicide. With honesty being his style, he uses hip hop as his vessel for communicating with others who may have gone through similar struggles. We hope to get the video seen by many so that those effected by these issues will feel hope and know that they are not alone.
With Sdotkeen’s third project “This is my Intro”, he truly flipped the script. Not using any samples or music or instruments to make the tracks for all the songs. Everything was done acapella. With vocals, beatbox, harmonies placed in a way that gives the illusion of sampled music. Then he added dope lyrics with a vibe some might say is low key and creative. He calls it Acapella style, but it might be Hip-Harmony!
